Did the rainy weather catch you off guard? Or are you a mommy, working long hard hours with little time to prepare party treats? Make these easy “melting snowman” cookies as a indoor family pastime activity. You can add to the fun by letting everyone make a snowman representing themselves or their family.
Choose a frozen party theme and these could represent Olaf!

1 Large egg white
250g Icing sugar
2.5ml Lemon juice
Vermicelli & fun sprinkles
Candy or other creative toppings
Alternatives to the recipe:
Soft icing can also be used.
As a healthy alternative use crackers with soft cream cheese, tofu for the head and veggies or dried fruit to decorate.
Extend the activity by baking your own sugar cookies.
1 Pair of scissors
1 Mixing bowl
1 Table spoon
Cut mallows in half then put them aside.
Hard icing sugar mix:
In the mixing bowl, beat the egg white into a white foam.
Add the icing sugar, bit by bit while whisking.

Liberally spoon blobs of icing sugar mixture onto the cookies.
Place the mellows to form the heads of the snowman.
